Hulk Hogan talks Impact vs. WWE

Hulk Hogan did an interview with the News & Record newspaper in Greensboro. He pushes TNA as an alternative to WWE saying they are more focused on wrestling than entertainment. “We’ve got
a lot of young guys who are pushing hard. And we’re trying to take our own course of destiny and make wrestling matter again. We’re not really
focused on skits and entertainment and backstage antics. We’re more focused on keeping the action as much as we can in the ring.”

    Then why are there so many “backstage antics” and “skits” involving Hogan not wrestling?

  2. “it’s a damn conspiracy” – R-Truth

  3. “We’ve got a lot of young guys who are pushing hard”….

    …against Hogan, for TV time.

  4. -Jay- says:

    Hogan is delusional…TNA never needed a bunch of rejects and has-beens to hold the hands of their homegrown talent, it was a huge setback bringing in the likes of Hogan and Bitchoff.

  5. Michael says:

    Not too many backstage skits? Really, Hogan?

  6. Ryan says:

    Honestly? WWE has actually been having much more in ring time in the last 5 or so months than TNA could imagine. I think Hogan doesn’t know what’s going on in either company.

  7. Nick says:

    Impact Wrestling has shown a major increase in its in-ring product of late as have the PPVs. I can accept arguments that they continue to focus on some of the wrong people, but that’s neither here nor there about the increased in-ring portions of the show.

    That being said, WWE has done the same. They seem to have really taken people’s fears about dropping the wrestling in their name to heart and focused farther away from much of the stupid comedy that was prevalent in their 2010 product.

  8. Hush says:

    Hey Hogan, how about you start doing what you say you are claiming to do with Impact Wrestling? Sounds great on paper why don’t you put some work into your idea and let it speak for itself once it’s in effect?

  9. dave says:

    They say all the right things but the end product is always far from what is envisaged.

  10. Mackdeezy says:

    Hogan, i got your back when you’re talking about your failed marriage, but I don’t side with you when you talk about your failed ideas

    Come in man, just let your career go while you still have respect from the ring

  11. Steve says:

    Well he is half right, they aren’t focused on entertainment.

  12. Drew says:

    “We’re not really focused on skits and entertainment and backstage antics”
    That’s bull$#!%

    “We’re more focused on keeping the action as much as we can in the ring”
    I wish that were true; the X Division has alot of great workers.
